Okay, I am putting this out there,here goes:
My name is Roberto Torres and I am looking for a flatter for my current coloring gig. I am a diamond published colorist for 2 short stories (WHITE CHAPEL 5 pg one shot and STARMAGE from IDW and JC Delatorre) and also from the diamond distributed series from Hashtag studios (Tailwands) along with having pencil and inks credits on Bubba the redneck werewolf from CREATURE ENT. (www.comicvine.com/roberto-torr…)
Currently I have 3 huge gigs on my desk and I need someone I can depend on to flat pages for me for the Tailwands series from Hashtag. There will be a contract to sign if you are selected. Again, this is a PAID job for hire.
I AM LOOKING TO HIRE:
Laying down flat colors using a program like Manga Studio 5 (preferred) or Photoshop (Not ideal but not a deal breaker.)
MEETS DEADLINE (This is a MUST)
Know Proper formatting of a flattened page
Be willing to learn to adjust to my way of doing things(if necessary, but I most likely will just adapt to you since i am on a deadline schedule here as well)
Be available to talk via text, IM, skype, etc
Able to turn around flats quickly
Be willing to sign an NDA and contract for work for hire
This is a PAID DEADLINE ORIENTED position. (no promises of exposure for work here)
This is not a glamorous job so please don't apply if you get bored or frustrated easily and later decide to walk off the project. ( I mean it.)
You will be paid via paypal
Payment every 6 pages
What you need to do: Send me a simple email with your name, experience, link to your portfolio of work and then send me 1 sample of sequential inked artwork you have flattened. I will provide a google drive folder for you to upload the files to in either Manga Studio 5 format (*.lip) or photoshop format (*.psd) No pinups samples please.
If your samples meet what I need then I will have a chat with you and I will give you the rate I am offering for the work. You are free to turn it down, of course. Just keep in mind that the rate will be per page and there are a lot of pages.
What I will be watching for:
Professionalism in our interactions
Timeliness of responses
How the files are constructed (some folks put inks and colors on same layer others separate all colors on their own layer, others leave lineart on one layer and colors on another, etc. none of these is the "right" way, by my way of reckoning. I just need to know what I am working with)
If you have done this for other colorists, please give me a reference, if not, that's okay. This isn't exactly rocket science here. I just want to get an idea of who you are and how you work.
Benefits of working with me:
Your name will appear next to mine in the inside cover credits as colorist
You will get more work in the future if we work well together
Whenever I pass on any full coloring gigs due to having my plate too full already, I will refer them to you if you prove trust worthy and can show you can meet deadlines and have the chops for the work.
Actual, published material that is DIAMOND DISTRIBUTED with your name on it and real work experience as a colorist.
